Governess Required, Northern QLD- POSITION FILLED


We are seeking someone to home tutor our two girls (year 1 and year 4) starting term 3, 2019.

We are looking for a person who has experience in teaching and has a good understanding of younger children.

We are offering at least $900 per week but this is very negotiable for a person who is experienced and suits the role. This role is not paid through In Home Care.

In addition to the weekly pay we include full private board with en suite accommodation, air-con/heater, wifi and food.


  • Must have good computer skills.

  • Own transport not essential but recommended.

  • Required until the end of 2019 school year minimum.

  • Must be flexible and be able to be part of the staff team.


Responsibilities include:

  • Teaching and monitoring online lessons for two children (year 1 and year 4). In year 4 students are expected to be fairly responsible and self reliant during online lessons whereas year 1 requires a much more hands on aproach.

  • Promptly return completed work to the class teacher.

  • Plan and deliver lessons from the tutor curriculum to the students as required.

  • Hours are 8am to 3pm with 1/2 hour smoko break and 1 hour lunch.


We are one hour from Hughenden, North West QLD on a bitumen road and five hours from Townsville and Cairns.

This role would provide an excellent opportunity to experience the bush life and go mustering on horseback or bike and experience any other outside interests you may have. There are plenty of other staff around to be social with and we are not far from a local township for any other requirements. We receive twice weekly mail.

We will pay good money for right person.

The school room, staff kitchen and accommodation are all separate from the main house.
